Begonia Pink - Basic care, Watering, Fertilising, and Planting

Begonia pink is named after Michel Begon, the French botanist who discovered the plant in the island of Santo Domingo and introduced it in Europe. These plants are native to the tropical and subtropical climates. They are grown as indoor ornamental houseplants in comparatively cooler climates. For flowering, they are cultivated in the summertime. The specialty of this plants is they have only sepals.

These plants are about 6 inches to 3 feet tall with a width of 6-12 inches. They bloom in orange, pink, white and yellow color. These plants are terrestrial herbs or under shrubs

Basic care

Begonia plants are easy to care for.

As begonia plants require optimal water, the watering requirements of the plant depend upon the weather. Trial and error is often the best way to figure out the plants watering needs.

Pinch off dead flowers spike to help the plant bloom better and brighter in the coming weeks.

Fertilize the plant every week or twice a week, depending on the growth of the plant. These plants need a balanced fertilizer having 10% amount of macronutrients, nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium.

Watering

Begonia plants need optimal water, like any other plant.

It's best to allow the soil to become dry between each watering which will depend on the time of year, how much humidity and amount of sunlight it's getting. Overwatering leads to root rot.

Soil

Begonia plants require a good draining soil mix, in a loam soil with fast drainage.

Avoid thick water logging soil, they lead to rotting of the roots, and fungal infections like leaf

spot.

Lighting

Begonia plants need bright light with some direct sunlight. A sunny windowsill will be an ideal

position for these plants. They will not flower without sunlight and inadequate light will cause developing spindly growth.

Flowering

Begonia plants flower in spring, fall and summer. They flower mostly in 12-20 weeks after

planting.

Fertilizer

Use soluble fertilizer mixed with water to fertilize the plants. If you over-fertilize, you'll notice signs of weak growth and the plant will not produce flowers.
